Book News Annotation:

Once over the shock of finding out that most of our favorite plants are imports, we can become receptive to the possibilities of a globalized garden. In luxuriant full-page color, an island gardener off the coast of Maine along with garden magazine editors showcase lovely, exotic, and quirky design ideas adapted from Italy, Britain, France, the tropics, and the Orient. Includes garden plans and a timeline of borrowed innovations, from the backyard in the 16th century to the 1988 introduction of the Asian homi hand cultivator. Lacks references. 10x10.25 <"> format.
